So as I wait patiently (yeah, right LOL) for my new calendar for this cycle I have things to keep me busy, thank goodness. Unfortunately that still doesn’t quiet down my brain. I have a really bad habit of multitasking when there’s no need to. Sitting down and watching a movie with Kenny. Great! But then I have a couple of books open working on next week’s dinner menu. It’s Monday…it can wait!! That’s just one stupid example of not being able to sit and enjoy being in the moment. Multitasking when there’s no need for it. Honestly, this really has nothing to do with anything, just something that popped into my mind this morning getting Clara and Kenny’s lunches together this morning. This was before I drew a mustache and goatee on Collin as he slept. Yeah, I get bored sometimes.
Clara started school last week. We’re hoping it’s a better year for her as last year was a bit of a struggle for us as parents. So far she’s only had to be told to dye her blonde locks to a more natural color which isn’t too bad. We did black, LOL. The younger ones start school next week and that means hours spent in the car every week. This gets challenging for me. I don’t mind the drive, that’s the easy part. I drive about 2 hours everyday. 30 minutes to, 30 minutes from…twice a day. That’s 80 miles everyday. This doesn’t include the time spent sitting in the car waiting for them to go in or be dismissed. Not a big deal, I know. But I HAVE to have something entertaining to do in the car while waiting. Talk radio, books, magazines, watching the birds eat worms. So this week I’ve added to my “To Do” list downloading tons of books to my Kindle and collecting magazines to read in the car. This is exciting stuff, huh? Don’t be jealous.
And one last thing running through my mind this past week…my “I want” list. Kenny says I’m pretty easy when it comes to buying me gifts. It totally sucks buying him his presents. I NEVER know what to get him. For many years I’d buy him something I put lots of thought into only to see him never use it. I only just got it right this past Christmas and birthday. Me, though…pretty easy. I’m not a girlie girl in the least so he’s happy not to have to buy me jewelry. I prefer t-shirts and jeans so being that I’m a MAD Smashing Pumpkins fan and a freak for Tom Petty I can expect that I shall get a new tee on every occasion. Did you say vinyl? Why, yes, I love me some records. DVDs? Yes, sir. But only if they’re the Golden Girls. I’ve had these on my list for awhile with no success, though. What the hell, Kenny? Actually, I know the problem here. Unfortunately Kenny is not a fan. I know…if I’d known that coming into the marriage…. But me thinks he doesn’t want to have the show on TV anymore than he has to…every night from 11pm to 1am. I’m pretty sure his dreams have much to do with Rose, Blanche, Dorothy and Sophia. He won’t fess up, though.
I’m also one of those weird women who LOVES getting kitchen appliances as presents. I wanted an extra refrigerator for Christmas and Kenny said no to that. Boooo!!! It would have rocked, I tell ya. I also want a deep fryer. Kenny’s afraid it will be an excuse to fry everything we eat. Duh!! He’s such a party pooper sometimes.
So as you can see, I’m pretty easy I think. Except I’m about to share what Kenny is getting me for my next birthday. He doesn’t know yet, so don’t tell him. Oooooh, I can’t wait. I’m so excited. Wait for it, wait for it…
Isn’t it lovely? My sister has an extreme hatred for these things and out of that was born an awesome idea. First of all, admit it. The MacBook Pro is beautiful and rocks and everything else sucks, right? Anyway, she says only douchebags buy them. So out of this came the idea for the dBag. LOL I want a computer bag for my MacBook that says “dBag” on it. Grey or black computer case with dBag written on it in the same font Mac uses. Isn’t it an AMAZING idea? All I have to do is find someone who will make it for me. My brother-in-law and I are so far the only two people I know who will use these awesome bags. Well, maybe not him so much but I know my sister will give it to him. If you know anyone who can make these, let me know. And if you see Kenny, don’t tell him what he’s getting me for my birthday. I want it to be a surprise.
***Edited to add…The idea of the dBag was in fact my other sister’s idea, Daisy. She threatened to cut me if I didn’t set the record straight. I apologize for all the trouble I may have caused by confusing my two sisters. Yeesh, you can take the girl out of the hood, but you can’t take the hood out of the girl.
